Bell Canada expands EVDO Rev. A service

updated 12:15 pm EDT, Mon April 30, 2007

Bell Canada EVDO Rev. A

Canada's largest phone provider, Bell, has today enhanced its EVDO broadband network with EVDO Revision A service to several regions in Ontario. Like other Rev. A networks, this should (in theory) allow download speeds as fast as 3.1Mbps, with an almost equally impressive 1.8Mbps for uploads. Customers should thus be able to make much better use of Bell's data services, such as real-time music and video streaming, and sending high-resolution photos.

Accompanying the network expansion is availability of three Rev. A modems, all based on Novatel's 720 design. The Merlin P720 fits in a PC Card slot, and uses a dual-band external antenna; the Ovation U720 is a USB modem, and the Merlin X720 is an ExpressCard version, with accessories for connecting to both PC Card and USB ports.
